A GAME OF LIES by Clare Mackintosh

They say the camera never lies.
But on this show, you can’t trust anything you see.

Stranded in the Welsh mountains, seven reality TV show contestants have no idea what they’ve signed up for. Each of these strangers has a secret, and secrets are the name of the game…  If a contestant’s secret is guessed or discovered by an opposing player, they will be eliminated. But more dangerously, their secret will be exposed, live on prime-time TV… The stakes are higher than anyone had ever imagined, and the players are trapped, in a nightmare reality of suspicion, doubt and lies….

The disappearance of a contestant wasn’t supposed to be part of the drama. Detective Ffion Morgan has to put aside what she’s watched on screen, and find out who these people really are – discovering those secrets before everyone else and knowing she can’t trust any of them. And when a murderer strikes, Ffion knows every one of her suspects has a secret worth killing for.

Clare Mackintosh is a police officer turned crime writer and the multi-award-winning author of six Sunday Times bestselling novels, including I Let You Go, which was the fastest-selling debut thriller in the year it was released. Translated into forty languages, her books have sold more than two million copies worldwide, have been New York Times and international bestsellers and have spent a combined total of 64 weeks in the Sunday Times bestseller chart. She now writes full time and lives in Wales with her husband and their three children.


ALL OF US ARE BROKEN by Fiona Cummins

The darkest detective hunts the deadliest killer

It’s been a long time since the Hardwicke family has been on holiday. But thirteen-year-old Galen has wanted to see the wild dolphins at Scotland’s Chanonry Point for as long as she can remember, and lone parent Christine is determined she gets her wish. No one deserves a break more than this family. But the much-needed trip is about to be interrupted… When DC Saul Anguish is called to the shooting of an ex-police officer, he quickly realises that this is just the beginning. He is looking at the first in a series of spree killings carried out by a damaged young couple hell-bent on infamy, their love story etched in blood. In pursuit, Saul follows their trail north. The paths of the Hardwickes’ and the deadly couple are about to collide and as the clock ticks down, Saul is on the hunt to find the killers before more lives are lost. But when he finally corners the pair, can he stop them before they force Christine into an impossible situation? And will he find the strength to lay to rest the ghosts of his past or will they break him?
